Top bump skier of all time skier Mikael Kingsbury-

At 56 seconds you can watch the slow motion. If you click on the icon in the lower left that looks like a gear the video can be slowed to .25 speed so it is super slow motion. You can see how Mikael maintains the movement of his upper body downhill without letting the pressure of the mogul push him back. This is just like the smooth offensive moves in a turn on a groomed slope, where progressive ankle flexing and tipping to the outside of the turn keeps the upper body keeps moving forward and downhill. Big MO(momentum,) let it go, go with the flow! Compare Mikael (the last skier) to the first skier in this next video to see the difference in how much better Mikael's timing and absorbing is that makes him look so smooth.
